    Compaction on site is usually effected by mechanical means such as rolling, ramming or vibrating. Control of the degree of compaction is necessary to achieve a satisfactory result at a reasonable cost. Laboratory compaction tests provide the basis for control procedures used on site. Compaction tests furnish the following basic data for soils: 1.

    Spike's Compaction Factor can also be used to estimate the amount of material you need to purchase for an area that needs to be filled and compacted. For instance, you need to place a 6" layer of gravel inside a foundation. Your calculation of the area for a 20' x 20' wide with a depth of 6" would give you a volume needed of 20 * 20 * .5 = 200
